The School of Continuing and Professional Studies at Philadelphia University is based on the philosophy that education is a lifelong experience influencing personal growth, career advancement or career change. Degree programs are designed to accommodate adult learners and their professional and personal obligations. Each term, students enroll in baccalaureate, associate and certificate programs on the Main Campus, Bucks County Campus and off-campus locations.

To accommodate busy professional and personal schedules, courses are offered in accelerated evening and weekend sessions. The program uses a hybrid distance-learning model. Students attend on-campus class sessions and participate in electronically mediated learning experiences during those times when they are not on campus. Select courses and programs are offered online. Special programs and tutoring services are available to help students adjust to the academic environment and strengthen skills in various content areas. Additionally, students who excel in their academic work are recognized on the dean’s list and in graduation honors.

The faculty and staff are committed to providing excellence in all phases of the academic experience. Continuing Studies strives to provide a challenging environment where students are able to reach their career and educational goals, as well as enrich their personal lives.
